Pro-Life State Representative Jason Smith Wins Special Election for 8th District Congressional Seat
The Missouri Right to Life Federal Political Action Committee would like to congratulate Jason Smith for his strong victory in the Special Election for the Eighth District Congressional seat, which was formerly held by Jo Ann Emerson.
As a State Representative, most recently as Speaker Pro Tem of the Missouri House, Jason Smith has held firm to his pro-life convictions since his election in 2005. He withstood pressure to compromise those beliefs, especially in the battle to protect innocent human life from the threat of destruction using biotechnology. He has consistently affirmed life in his voting record and has a solid commitment to helping the unborn, their mothers, and their families. Protecting the sanctity of life is not just a political position to Jason; it's part of his core values.
MRL PAC is proud to count Jason Smith among those who fight for life, and we look forward to working with him as he represents pro-life Missourians in the U.S. Congress.
